  1. Fascinating piece. You have such a great eye Judy.
  2. Wonderful wood prints Mike, so in tune with yourAsian bent. I'm just a tad (!) jealous!
  3. Yonsei what I have established is this: These were made as tourist items on Mikimoto Island in Japan in the 1950s. They were hand made and used the cultured pearls farmed around the island. There a...
  4. Yeah mate! All good. Thanks OGF for that lovely comment.
  5. I hope it was Kyra, maybe just dopiness :)
  6. As usual Jewels.....
  7. They are great Jewels, and the Instone style here seems almost lyrical. He certainly was a great jeweller.
  8. Fantastic and fun!
  9. So very special
  10. Just beautiful
  11. Incredible collection - so many beautiful pieces Jewels! I can see some similarity here with my blue ring too.
  12. Interesting and beautiful pieces. I thought glass got difficult to ID - jewellery seems just as open to misattribution!
  13. Great info. I imagine then that it can be very difficult to identify the actual jewellers if design parts like the leaves were made and sold for assembly elsewhere. Thanks for the post Jewels.
  14. About that size FF!
  15. I thought around then too Judy based on the state shapes. Cape York is now in the West lol!! It's a sweetie of a piece I agree.
  16. Cute typo NB! It's actually a very small brooch so would need to be a doll buckle but I get where you are coming from. Thanks mate! Thanks Kyra - cute indeed.
  17. Glad you get it Bonnie....thanks :)
  18. So many similarities with both my brooches! I just don't have the creativity to use mine the same way as you do. Beautiful ideas Kyra.
  19. Thanks again Jewels. I'm looking forward to your posts!
  20. Kyra thanks so much for your searching and references, and it makes so much sense. So I have a vintage ammonite brooch from Germany, and a newer carnelian brooch from Shipton and Co. You and Jewels ...
  21. Thanks KJ and Kivantiz for the love. Valentino I am awed at the knowledge and information shown here.
  22. They sure look good and probably much more comfortable than a clip. Sleep in them and see if they stay on!
  23. Either way it's a beauty, but I am sure you will really love wearing it now Judy!
  24. They are Inky! Thanks ;))
  25. Congratulations (again!) Alan, and a beautiful piece to hit it with.
  26. Stylish, even without it's glass bowl.
  27. So much work in these; beautiful carving.
  28. A pretty great Tuesday find, and it speaks a truth!
  29. Fantastic period League figures!
  30. A beauty Alan.
  31. Jewels you are a generous sharer of your knowledge and an asset to us all here. I always thought your plique-a-jour brooch French.....I will now need to keep my mind more open. Fascinating info abo...
  32. It's awesome isn't it Gillian to see so much and learn from generous people here on CW. All this jewellery is new to me so I'm learning from every comment. Thanks for your comment!
  33. Freiheit, thank you. It is good to have a ready comparison! Pebble it may well be and I will look that up. I admit to huge gaps in my knowledge re stones. Thanks for that!
  34. Alan thanks for loving my little duck. I'm always happy to hear from you.
  35. OGF I always knew you had excellent taste! Thanks :)
  36. Hope it's amusing you Marty!
  37. Thanks too Judy :)
  38. Ohhh thanks Bonnie, oh Queen of Silvery Things!!
  39. Thanks again Jewels. German! - so interesting to me as a newby. It just shows that styles are transferred from region to region and although similar they can actually be very different. It happen...
  40. It must be such a difference for you Mike not seeing and buying good jewellery, and lots of it, from your op shops. I'm sure some will appear soon knowing your touch! Thanks for the love here - I to...
  41. Many thanks, as always, Scott for your comment and love.
  42. Thanks Jewels, I can comfortably think it Shipton now? I won't be at Wenty in October due to work commitments, but am hoping to clear some junk (oops, treasures) at the November markets.
  43. Thanks Jewels for your expert knowledge on this ring. It's good to know it's still not a definite attribution to anyone really and actually clarifies for me the information I see online about these j...
  44. How beautiful are they as collections - gorgeous vases.
  45. Possibly Thai. Indra?
  46. A beautiful old pendant. We hope to see more from your collection. More photos is good too!
  47. Rick that's pretty high tech. I don't mind being called Cameron by a computer! Thanks for the comment and love :)
  48. Thanks Rick, it is a lovely stone. Ken I'm glad you like it! The photos turned out well for me, so thanks.
  49. It does look very Japanese...Wonderful.
  50. Nicely incised pottery!
